When I was in college, I would often check Blue Sky Studios Challenge blog for inspiration. The work was usually top-notch (nice office buzzword for you) and entertaining. Today, when I remembered about the site, I went to visit and discovered that they haven't updated since last Fall. Perhaps because of the release of Blue Sky Studios' recent 3-D film, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, they stopped doing it or because of a general slowdown. Either way, it was a depressing discovery on my part. The employees used to create illustrations based upon random themes. Lots of them were very creative. Check out the past images on the blog—since it's still there. Considering that the idea is really amazing, I'm thinking of starting another blog for themed illustrations. If you have some beginning ideas, comment. I'll do one illustration per week. Expect more coming soon.
